What is PaperCut?
PaperCut is a printing management software. Our integration lets you track printing in PaperCut and charge printing through Nexudus. This includes charging for prints and invoicing them, giving printing credits that customers can then use to print through PaperCut, and even manage free printing options.
How the PaperCut Integration Works
You first need to purchase a PaperCut license and set up your printers. Nexudus currently intregrates with PaperCut MF and PaperCut NG.
The number of users to include in your PaperCut license depends on the number of Nexudus customers you have in your location.
For example, you have 200 customers in a Nexudus location and you want them all to print using PaperCut.
In this scenario your PaperCut license must include at least 200 users. If you only wanted 50 members out of your 200 users to print using PaperCut, your PaperCut license should include at least 50 users.
Once you have a license and your printers set up in PaperCut, you can start the integration process.
For more information, check out Integrating PaperCut.
The integration can automatically add new customers to PaperCut and charges them based on their printing using credits, pay-per-print or a combination of both. You can also choose to let your customers print for free.
Can I use this integration with PaperCut Hive?
No, our integration currently works with PaperCut MF and PaperCut NG.
Can I use any printer with this integration?
You can use any printer that PaperCut supports with our integration. If your printer isn't supported by PaperCut, it won't work with our integration.
How often does the extender sync with PaperCut?
The Nexudus extender automatically syncs with PaperCut every 15 minutes. This means that any new customer with printing access in Nexudus can take up to 15 minutes to sync in PaperCut. If the new customer needs to print straight away, you can trigger a manual sync by opening the extender on your PC and clicking Sync now.
How long do you keep my PaperCut logs?
We keep logs of all syncs recorded in PaperCut within the last 30 days. We automatically delete any logs older than 30 days.
